All you need is love... and

As the wedding bells start ringing it’s easy to get caught up in the joy and excitement of planning your big day. A lot of thought goes into the wedding cake, from choosing the flavour to the design. However, do you know that it’s also an age-old tradition to preserve a slice of wedding cake for your first anniversary? Keeping the top-tier of your wedding cake frozen for a year is a sweet and sentimental way to relive your magical day and make new memories. Decadently Yours is giving us a guide on freezing your wedding cake for your first anniversary.

Choose the Right Cake:

If you’re planning on freezing your wedding cake, make sure you select the right one. Most cakes can be frozen, but some will hold up better than others. A plain cake without mousse or other fillings tends to freeze better. Also, keep in mind that fondant cakes and cakes decorated with fresh flowers might not survive the deep freeze.

Prepare the Cake:

Before freezing your cake, you need to remove any decorative items and the top layer of fondant or icing. Make sure that it’s clean and free of any debris. Next, wrap the cake tightly in plastic wrap to protect it from freezer burn and other odours.

Freezing the Cake:

Once the cake is wrapped, place it in an airtight container or box. Make sure that the container is big enough to hold the cake without damaging it. Label the container with the date and the cake’s contents and place it in the freezer. It’s essential to keep the cake in the back of the freezer, where it’s less likely to become damaged.

Thawing the Cake:

On your first anniversary, it’s time to unbox the cake. Remove the cake from the container and let it thaw in its wrapping at room temperature for a few hours. After that, take off the wrapping to reveal your beautifully preserved cake.
